In the Arctic, snow directly influences resource availability. The causes and consequences of different migration patterns of migratory species as a response to the snow conditions remains however unexplored. Birds migrating to the Arctic are expected to follow the spring snowmelt to optimise their arrival time and select for snow-free areas to maximise prey encounter en-route. Based on large-scale movement data, we compared the migration patterns of three top predator species of the tundra in relation to the spatio-temporal dynamics of snow cover. The snowy owl, an irruptive migrant, the rough-legged buzzard, with an intermediary migration pattern, and the peregrine falcon as a regular migrant, all followed, as expected, the spring snowmelt during their migrations. However, the owl stayed ahead, the buzzard stayed on, and the falcon stayed behind the spatio-temporal peak in snowmelt. Although none of the species avoided snow-covered areas, they presumably used snow presence as a cue to time their arrival at their breeding grounds. We show the importance of environmental cues for species with different migration patterns.</dcterms:abstract> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/50493"/> <dc:contributor>Burnham, Kurt</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Lewis, Stephen B</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2020-08-12T08:57:59Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Kidd, Jeff</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Burnham, Kurt</dc:creator> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0"/> <dc:contributor>Øien, Ingar J</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Franke, Alastair</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Wikelski, Martin</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dc:contributor>Aarvak, Tomas</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Solheim, Roar</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Curk, Teja</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:contributor>Franke, Alastair</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Dietz, Andreas</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Curk, Teja</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Øien, Ingar J</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Jacobsen, Karl-Otto</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Safi, Kamran</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Pokrovsky, Ivan</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Dietz, Andreas</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Pokrovsky, Ivan</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Aarvak, Tomas</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Safi, Kamran</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Gauthier, Gilles</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Gauthier, Gilles</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Wikelski, Martin</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>Arctic avian predators synchronise their spring migration with the northern progression of snowmelt</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Kidd, Jeff</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Jacobsen, Karl-Otto</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
